    Need New Runningback

    We need to draft or sign a dynamic Runningback who can break some tackles and convert on short yardage. Other than OL, this is our most pressing need. When Tannehill has support from the running game, we usually win.

    Which RBs would you target in the draft that would fill this need?

    Worst draft day moves: trading up for Daniel Thomas.

    As for who we should target, I really don't know, but the decent FAs are likely to be grossly overpaid (see Ben Tate).
    Oh no, we suck again!

    There are some studs to be found in the draft. I just dunno if we can trust Ireland to do so

    Still want to trade for Mark Ingram. Has potential to be a bruiser between the tackles and is lost in the shuffle in NO.

    Mark Ingram sucks. He doesn't know how to recognize lanes.
    Joe Philbin says, "Jim Turner was a great coach. He made sure shoes were tied at all times and that no gum wrappers touched the field."

    I don't think so. We can't afford to waste our picks on RB's. We need OL and LB's...not RB's. If we had a decent line, the RB's would be fine...

    Then he would excel in our offense since we can't create any lanes.

    Need new running backs. Plural. None of the three guys on the team have justified coming back, although I imagine Miller will. But none of them can block and Miller, for all his speed, doesn't look really natural going out for a pass or finding a hole. Honestly, I wish we'd have found a way to keep Reggie Bush.

    I'm watching the GB and Pitt game right now and they have some backs than can carry a team in bad weather... Playoff weather.

    We don't.

    We need a guy like Lacy or Bell to take pressure off the passing offense.

    I agree that OL and LBs should be priorities, but you can't downplay the impact or a back that can grind out conversions and tough yards.

    Btw, I'm not saying we should spend a 1st rounder on one. A 2nd or 3rd? Absolutely. Although that is dicey with Ireland at the helm
